Yes, you are right. Port Bolivar is the only yard in the area with a travel lift
big enough to haul out a Lagoon 42 (and also willing to do it). We have done the search ourselves. This yard is expensive, and the day rate for the hard stand is also expensive, but the travel lift
is plenty big enough as it mostly does commercial
vessels and barges.
There is another option available if you are prepared to hire a crane, but this more expensive again. There have been two Lagoon 42's that have been lifted out via crane at the Seabrook yard (mine and one other).
yard at Dickinson
used to haul out pleasure cats, but stopped doing this last year because the risk of over spray from painting of commercial vessels in their yard was too much of a nuisance for them.
If you are interested in the details of the routine at the Seabrook yard, I can send a PM.
